"Topological Quantum Computation" Xie Chen, Assistant Professor of Theoretical Physics, is a condensed-matter theorist who examines quantum-mechanical systems with a large number of degrees of freedom. She is interested in learning how the constituent degrees of freedom cooperate with one another to realize amazing emergent phenomena. In particular, she is focused on the unconventional behavior, especially the topological properties, of quantum many-body systems in the strongly interacting regime.
The Caltech Alumni Association held a day-long event to explore the ways in which computational thinking at Caltech is disrupting science and engineering, creating entirely new disciplines with "CS+X". From developing new paradigms for computation—quantum computing and DNA computing—to pushing the boundaries of machine learning and statistics in ways that transform fields like astronomy, chemistry, neuroscience, and biology, Caltech faculty are pioneering new disciplines at the interface of computer science, and science and engineering.
